One of my Top 5 favourite albums of all time. I have to listen to it in its enirety at least once a week, every single week of my life.
O'Connor's performance on this is suberb. Probably one of the best metal vocal performances of all time. I have never heard anyone sing with such passion.
Romano's guitar playing may not be the most technical out there, but it's full of emotion. The riffs are simple, but awesome sounding and really catchy. The Guitar Solos are, again, full of emotion and passion.
Strunz's drumming is amazing too. Really good double bass and great fills. Leyend says he recorded all his drumming for this album on one day, and six days after he joined the band.
Iorio's bass playing is quite mediocre, but he's one of the best metal composers of all time. (He composed almost every single song V8 and Hermetica recorded, and some of Almafuerte's songs.) But his best are his lyrics, of course. This is, hands down, the best lyrical album ever made. The songs are poems of the working class life in Argentina, and songs against the government. But all beautifully written. It's in spanish, so many people won't get it. And it cannot be translated, cause it will lose the beauty of it. My favourite album to sing along to.
EL ES REFLEJO DE MI PRESENTE, SIN EL NO HAY NADA QUE ME CONTENTE. POR ESO SIGO Y SEGUIRE EN SU CAMINO, DEL CUAL SOY PARTE Y NO ME RINDO. LAS VOCES DE DISCOTECAS NO TIENEN CABIDA, EN ESTA MOVIDA. YO REPUDIO TODA ESA CARETA, DE MERSA COQUETA
NO CALLARE, PORQUE ME SOBRA AGUANTE. Y ALZO MI VOZ EVITANDO EL ABLANDO DEL LADROOOOOON!

Thrash without solos? Like diesel engine without turbo i must say. After three rotations I can't recall any of the songs. Good thrashing, but 9.5? No way...
What are you talking about? Except the instrumental tracks every song has a solo.
